Understand who is actually using that expensive software you’re paying for

Many organizations have a variety of tools they spend time researching, checking, training on, and then never using again. No one wants to spend money on a shoestring budget for “shelves”, when, according to one recent study, software is the single largest item in the IT budget, with 39% of the average IT budget. Cost control in this area is essential. Forbes writes that shelves actually represent 30% of software tools.

Workforce cyber intelligence provides organizations with a privacy-centric solution that helps understand and optimize employee engagement, optimize tool and software investments, and minimize employee burnout. We offer our customers this vision through DTEX IMPULSE.

PULSE takes a privacy-by-design approach, allowing organizations to obtain data about their workforce without undermining trust between employees. Traditional surveillance-based solutions that log keystrokes, web browsing and emails of individually named employees breed mistrust. Using pseudonymization and by capturing only the minimum amount of data needed, organizations can learn what they need to know, keep employees engaged, and build partnerships with their staff.

Understanding your asset and software usage is critical to optimizing business operations as IT budget requirements continue to grow in organizations of all sizes. This is where Workforce Cyber ​​Intelligence comes in. It helps answer why, how, whenand for how long employees use company assets. It provides reports on the applications used, the services that use them and the frequency of use, not just the number of licenses and seats involved! This helps IT and provisioning teams understand which applications are critical, which are overlicensed, and which may be down.
